Comprehensive theory of the e-field probe
There are a number of good and a number of bad approaches to explaining the function of e-field probes. Daniel, LU2DDU,
a professor emeritus at the Universidad de la Plata in Argentina, rolled up his sleeves and wrote the first comprehensive treatise on the topic,
including the build of an individual e-field probe.

Theory of Operation of the Electric Field Sensor
Impedance Adapters for Electric Field Sensors
Recepcion Emisores VLF - LF
Dependence of the Antenna Factor on the Environment
Fundamental e-field probe practice
The practical application of the e-field probe, i. e. the combination of the e-field sensor and the impedance converter, is inextricably linked to Roelof, PA0RDT.
Over 20 years ago, Roelof systematically examined the properties of e-field probes and
through practical experience created an extremely useful receiving device known as the PA0RDT MiniWhip.
